Enormous £2m Penguin Pool at London Zoo

They've p-p-perked up the penguin house! Enormous £2m pool unveiled at London Zoo

With a beach, pool and round-the-clock childcare, it has everything a pampered penguin could want.

The pool has underwater viewing areas so visitors can see the flightless birds in their element, and landscaping which mimics the penguins' southern hemisphere habitats.
For example, wild macaronis live in Antarctica where the ground is too hard for them to make proper nests piles of pebbles. Penguin Beach contains a stretch of rocky shore that allows the macaronis to do the same.
The Zoological Society of London's penguin expert Tom Hart said of Penguin Beach: 'It's much bigger and deeper. Ones that like the beach or rocky shores have got their habitats. They look really happy.'
